FLEETCOR Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FLT), a leading global business payments company, today announced that Alexey Gavrilenya, the Company’s head of the Europe Fuel Card business, has been named group president of its North America Fuel Card business.

“We are delighted to welcome Alexey to Atlanta, and into the role heading our North America fuel card businesses,” said Ron Clarke, chairman and chief executive officer, FLEETCOR Technologies, Inc. “Alexey brings years of relevant operating experience successfully running a number of our European fuel card businesses. In addition, Alexey has six outstanding line of business leaders, who are currently managing our various market focused fuel card businesses, reporting into him.”

Mr. Gavrilenya joined FLEETCOR in 2009, as vice president finance & business development for its Russia fuel card businesses.
